The present invention relates to a cooling air system in turbomachinery. More particularly, this invention relates to airflow deflectors used in the cooling air system in turbomachinery. The airflow deflectors reduce the impingement of the cooling airflow on the High Pressure Turbine (HPT) casing when the air enters the Intermediate Pressure Turbine (IPT) manifold. Additionally, the deflectors promote a more uniform flow of cool air through the IPT manifold and into the HPT casing.
